Continuing on with our unit on Fractions, Decimals & Percents, our classes discussed the true meaning of “percent” and the fact that percents are based off of 100. Students also learned how to convert decimals to percents and percents to decimals. We call this “The Dr. Pepper Method”. Please see the attached notes from the whiteboard. Students took these notes down in their notebooks today.
Our classes worked on two different sheets in class. We worked a few problems from each sheet together to make sure students understood the procedures for converting one form into another form. Those sheets are attached as well. Students were instructed to NOT complete these two sheets for homework. Instead, we will keep them in our math safe place and get them back out on Monday, March 16th.
No homework over your 3-day weekend! Enjoy the weather!
